Template talk:Annotated image/Extinction

There needs to be a way, either via the image or the caption, to reach the image description page. Without that there is no attribution for either the image or the data. Dragons flight (talk) 00:39, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

How do image maps usually resolve this problem? The image name is visible in the source so there should be no copyright issues. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 08:13, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
I've never worked with image maps, so I can't answer that. Dragons flight (talk) 08:36, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually it seems the imagemap extension provides a "desc" field for creating a exactly such links, so that is one option. Dragons flight (talk) 08:49, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
Bloody edit conflict!
Problem is that this template uses Extension:ImageMap as well as Template:Annotated image. On its own, Template:Annotated image makes un-annotated areas link to the image description page; but it appears that Extension:ImageMap suppresses this. Extension:ImageMapprovides 2 ways to link to the image description page:
  • desc parameter, e.g. "desc bottom-left" places "i" button bottom left. Not a great option here.
  • default parameter, e.g. "default myImage.svg", makes all except the defined hot spots link to specified location. This might be worth trying, provided it does not suppress the annotations.
I've set default, works fine for me using K-meleon: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070727 K-Meleon/1.1.2). I'd expect it to work well for Firefox, which uses same Gecko engine. IE, anyone?
Image description page has citations. -- Philcha (talk) 09:37, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

The same way they did it[edit]

Shouldn't the quaternary period be on this map as well? Isn't this the second most devastating period of extinction? I can't add it myself because the numbers in the coding do not directly correspond to the numbers of the data so I can't see how it works, ~ R.T.G 00:48, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Actually, the numbers on the picture go fully up to zero, but the data doesn't seem to match the articles as regards the zero/present part. There should be a big line there at the end and a link to the last 3 million years, no? Maybe it's the difference between marine data and overall data..? I don't know but there is definitely no quaternary in the source code of the links. ~ R.T.G 00:55, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
